“Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”– JOHN 21:25
I love a good story. I try to tell one whenever I can. The problem is that I live in Fort Worth Texas, and people say we talk funny. There are simple rules for telling the story right. In Texas, you don’t say “you all,” you say “Y’all,” which means “you all.” Unless it’s a lot of y’all then it’s “all y’all,” which means “all of you all.” If you can understand this you can understand any story someone from Texas is telling.
Similarly, in the Bible, there is an important premise. Jesus loves all y’all and there is nothing you can do about it. If you understand this then you are on your way to understanding the story of Jesus’ life. He had so many great stories from feeding 5000 people, to raising folks from the dead so to even walking on water. His best story was when He died and rose again to save all of us. If all His stories were written down, the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. And if they were turned into movies we would be on Jesus Part 4,758,395.
How does the story of Jesus resonate with you? Do you know enough of it to tell His story effectively? God wants you to share your story with others about how Jesus came into your life to give you life in hopes that it draws them closer to Him. Tell your story, but most importantly tell His story, every chance you get.
Heavenly Father thank you for making your story simple enough for even children to share. Thank you for your wisdom and for your love. In Jesus name, Amen.
Go Deeper ― When was the last time you shared your story? Do you sometimes share your story and Jesus is not the main point? How can you change that?
Prescott Williamson is a Bible-believing Christian. He is a husband, a father, and someone who believes that there is a little humor to be found in whatever situation God sends your way. He was born in the small islands of the Bahamas but now lives in the Suburbs of Fort Worth Texas, which is basically the same thing. He enjoys TV, reading, blogging and serving in his church (especially on the days they serve donuts). You can see what I have been thinking about lately on my blog www.prescottascoolbreeze.com.
